We were approached by the London Buddhist Centre to design alterations to the listed Victorian / Edwardian fire station in Bethnal Green that they had converted and occupied since the 1970s.
Community accommodation on the upper levels was re-arranged and refurbished. The basement was converted to a suite of meditation and therapy spaces called 'Breathing Space'. The admin functions formerly in the basement moved to a rear wing. Lighting, heating and IT were updated and accessibility measures introduced. The public entrance area was expanded into a new atrium taking up part of the courtyard.
